Burnt Orange Filigree Pendant Knit Headband

So the time is coming (not here yet technically, at least in Chicago considering it is supposed to be 65 on Thanksgiving) soon where, if you haven’t already, we are going to have to dig out our hats/headbands and gloves and add them to our winter daily wardrobes. I really have always been  more of a fan of winter knit headbands than hats- they don’t mess up my hair if they have a button in the back so I can take them off and put them on without rubbing them against my hair, and they totally create less static. But, I have always had a hard time finding a knit headband that can double as an accessory, instead of looking like a unisex ugly fleece ski headband. So, after spending the last few winters trying to find a knit headband that could double as a cute accessory to my winter outerwear, I decided to start knitting my own. Yep, I knit. I’ve been thinking about buying a rocking chair and a cat to bat the yarn ball around but I’m allergic to cats and I hate rocking chairs so… that’s out. Anyways, a few years ago I finally started knitting my own headbands, and then began to make some for friends and relatives upon request.  They shared my problems of not being able to find a cute headband, and also not wanting to see a 10 year old boy wearing the exact same one once they settled on the generic unisex fleece headband that we all know we have owned at some point. Now that the weather is getting cold enough to wear these knit headbands, I thought that I’d add them to the lakeshore lavaliere winter line. Here is a burnt orange knit headband with a filigree & stone pendant that I made the other day:

 

The filigree layers come together to make a flower pendant, and I added an orange/copper patina to the second filigree layer to make it flow with the burnt orange color of the yarn. There is a wooden button closure in the back to put the headband on and take it off without creating a major hair static disaster. The yarn is thick and extremely warm- I have worn my other ones skiing and running in the dead of winter and my ears stayed nice and toasty.

Later today I’m going to add photos of the other colors of yarn available for this headband– I’ve been growing my yarn collection for about 5 years, so there are probably 50 other colors this headband can come in.

Woven Yellow Baby Headband with White Flowers

This baby/toddler headband was a custom order- which left me free to get creative in the design process! The headband is made of yellow ribbon that I wove together to create the braided look, and embellished with white flowers, pearls, and antique gold accents like the cute little hearts outside the line of flowers. This headband came out having a whimsical, flower-child-like vibe- which is exactly what I like ; ) – and I just loved making it. In the back, the headband has 3 gold tone buttons that fit into braided & flowered button holes, so that it can be adjusted for 3 different sizes. Honestly, I think the back might be my favorite part.

Turtle Cuff Bracelet

I’m not going to lie- I made this turtle cuff bracelet with green tube beads & jasper round beads for myself. I wear a ton of earth tones in all seasons, and when these beads came in, I fell in love with the way the greens of the tube beads accented the brown swirls of the jasper beads. I knew I wanted to make a piece that incorporated  both, so I decided to bring them together in this 4 layer cuff bracelet.

I’m kind of obsessed with cuff bracelets right now & I’ll definitely be making more in a variety of different colors- so look out for upcoming posts with pictures of new cuff bracelets and other pieces!
